It’s hard to say which comes first: the chicken or the egg.  But regarding the interior design of the following two entrance halls, I dare say it was Cy.

 American painter, draughtsman, printmaker, and sculptor Cy Twombly (April 25, 1928 – July 5, 2011) was revered for his large, freely gestured, calligraphy /graffiti-esque paintings, such as both enclosed, both titled “Untitled,” :

Cy Twombly
Cy Twombly, Untitled, 2006 acrylic on canvas 84 3/4 x 66 in. (215 x 167.8 cm) Signed “CT” upper left.

An entrance hall marked by his influence :


…And another painting by the artist :

 Cy Twombly
Cy Twombly, Untitled, 1967, oil and crayon on canvas, 58 x 70″, collection of The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, The Barry Lowen Collection.

…and (an)other entry that, well, makes quite an entrance… with Cy style.
